Me boots and shoes is all in pawn
Go down ye blood-red roses, go down
It's flaming draughty round Cape Horn
Go down ye blood-red roses, go down
Oh ye pinks and posies
Go down ye blood-red roses, go down

It's round Cape Stiff we has to go
It's round Cape Stiff in the frost and snow

It's growl you may but go you must
You growl too hard, your head they'll bust

'Topman up!' the mate he roars
'It's lay aloft you lazy whores!'

So 'rock and shake her' is the cry
The bleeding topmast sheave is dry

Just one more pull and that'll do
For we're the boys to kick her through
